This one has the correct date! Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 6th February, 6.30pm, at the usual place, St Charles' Church Hall, 1 Kelvinside Gardens, G20 6BG. Our meetings are open to all residents.
One of the items on the agenda is parking: if you have a view, please come along if you can. This is particularly important in the light of the recent incident on Doune Gardens when parked cars prevented a fire engine reaching an abandoned car that had been set on fire. Fortunately the firefighters were able to extend a hose sufficiently and the fire was extinguished, not before the tank had exploded. The car was later removed. The lack of access to the fire engine is extremely concerning.
Also on the crime front, we have heard more reports of young bikers vandalising cars in the area. Please report any incidents you notice to the police.
Phase 2 of Glasgow City Council's city-wide Bin Replacement Programme is set for the Hillhead area between April 2018 and March 2019.

- Larger bins and cleaner backcourts

- Better and cleaner environment
